how very very true

Adulthood is the ever-shrinking period between childhood and old age. It is the apparent aim of modern industrial societies to reduce this period to a minimum.
-Thomas Szasz, author, professor of psychiatry (1920- )

Hm. If childhood's supposedly shortening too, what're we left with?

Heh, childhood's not really shortening. It extends all the way through college now.

Adulthood is shrinking because children and old people buy more stuff. Marketing at work... :-(
